  4. Wow! Love it! Also, she looks so beautiful-scary in a few of those… definitely frame-worthy!

  15. Julia, this costume is UNBELIEVABLY creative and awesome!!!!!!! Also your daughter is such a cutie, I love her smile, and I wonder if she enjoys this so much maybe she would like acting? She is such a natural!

  16. This is incredible! Great job. And she’s such a little model! I love it.

  17. This is so totally amazing! My daughter wants to be Maleficent for Halloween this year and I’ve been really trying to think how I was going to make those horns. Thanks for the inspiration!

  18. Phone acting ridiculous… Every detail. And your daughter is do previous and beautiful. Her facial expressions are priceless! Great work, mama!

  19. This is so incredible! I was actually at the Disney store the other day and a lady asked if they had any Maleficent costumes. I hope she googles it and finds this tutorial!! I love how quickly your daughter gets into character! Amazing!

    This costume ROCKS!! My son HATES Halloween, so I have to live vicariously through other peoples children:)

  21. SO AWESOME!!!! She looks so cute and I love how she sketched out a plan for you πŸ™‚

  22. I am not sure if you got my other message or if it deleted it when I logged in, sorry if this is double. We have a Maleficent too this year. We are just wondering what you used for the make-up? It looks great!

    1. Sorry, no I didn’t get a message from you before. I used Snazaroo and there is a link to the paint up above. I love the paint. Hope that helps.

  23. Thank You! I found some at a local craft store. Everything I had tried was too sheer & didn’t look right. I don’t know how I missed that link before, I thought I read through it 3 times. You might have saved our Halloween!

    1. Hope it works for you as good as it works for me. There is a huge difference between that paint and the store bought face paint. So much better for sure.

  24. Followed your instructions and my daughter’s Maleficent headpiece turned out perfect! Thanks for a cheap, easy custom fit headpiece!

    1. Oh I’m so glad it turned out well and that you are telling me about it too. I don’t get many comments like that!!!

  25. How did you attach the horns?

    1. With duct tape which was the only tape used for the entire costume.

  26. Thank you!!! Using this tutorial for my daughters Malifecint costume this year!!

    Question- did her head get hot? We are utilizing this costume twice – once for Halloween, but before that we are also using it for a school Haloween ball. I’m nervous right her head will be hot because of the plastic bag.


    1. Hi Teresa that’s awesome that you are using my tutorial. Thanks! I just asked her if her head was hot and she said no. That said though we only used it for Halloween night outside and it was cold. So I’m not a big help in answering this question for you. I’m so sorry. Have a great Sunday.

      1. Thank you! We did this one this year and it turned out great! My daughter said it was her favorite costume ever! We couldnt find a crow so we did the crow the same way as the horns-tinfoil and duct tape. It was fabulous. And her head DID get hot, but she let it cool a few minutes and was fine. Thanks so much!

        1. I’m so glad it worked out for you and your daughter. And thanks so much for the update!

  27. I just wanted to thank you for this post! I found it a few weeks ago when I was doing a search on how to make the costume without sewing (honestly, really thinking this would be the year and I would finally break and store buy). We got SO many compliments, and my daughter was just thrilled. I don’t think I can add a photo here, but trust that even though ours wasn’t quite as refined, your method was still a huge hit in my neighborhood, and everyone was impressed we did it ourselves. Happy Halloween!

    1. Oh thanks so much! I’m glad it worked out for you. I love hearing that so much.
